  • 4 zucchini – peeled and sliced
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • ½ tsp. dried oregano
  • 2 – tbs. canola oil
  • For the Fresh Tomato Sauce:
  • 10 – 12 fresh beefsteak tomatoes quartered
  • 5 cloves garlic – chopped
  • 1 tbs. sugar
  • 1 tbs. salt
  • 1 tbs. dried oregano

  • ½ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • Romano cheese for grating
  • 3 tbs. olive oil
  • 1 lb. of your favorite spaghetti

  1. For the Zucchini:
  2. Place the sliced zucchini in a bowl; add the seasonings, lemon juice and canola.
  3. Heat a large frying pan and place the sliced zucchini in the pan; do not over crowd the pan. When the zucchini become golden on one side, turn over and finish cooking on the other side.
